Dionic 26V Gold Mount Plus Series
Anton/Bauer has launched the new Dionic 26V Gold Mount Plus Series which will start shipping early October. The Dionic 26V batteries are the perfect solution to run the power-hungry devices necessary for today’s demanding cinematography standards. Developed for cinematographers, rental houses, and content creators, these 26V Li-ion batteries offer up to 240 watt-hours of reliable, safe, and efficient power for higher-power-draw cinematic cameras and LED lights. Featuring Anton/Bauer’s new Gold Mount® Plus mount, the DIONIC 26V range includes 98-watt-hour and 240-watt-hour batteries, as well as a quad charger, a quad discharger, and a range of mounting plates for connecting to industry-leading cameras and LED lighting fixtures.
The DIONIC 26V series has been designed to drive high-power cinematic cameras such as the ARRI Alexa LF, SXT, and 65, and will also support mobile power for popular LED panels, including Litepanels’ Gemini Soft panels and ARRI’s SkyPanel series.
The Dionic 26V Gold Mount Plus Series includes the following 26V solutions:
- 26V 98Wh Gold Mount Plus Battery – Durable 26V / 12A power that’s IATA Certified for carry-on travel
- 26V 240Wh Gold Mount Plus Battery – Compact 26V 12A power for extended runtimes (drives an Alexa LF for ~2 hours!)
- 26V Gold Mount Plus Dual Voltage Quad Charger – Charges 14.4V and 26V Gold Mount and Gold Mount Plus batteries simultaneously (Charges 26V 98Wh in ~1.5 hours!)
- 26V Gold Mount Plus Quad Discharger – Simultaneously discharges up to four 14.4V Gold Mount or 26V Gold Mount Plus batteries to less than 30% to meet IATA travel regulations
- 26V Gold Mount Plus Bracket – Powers ARRI Alexa LF, 65 and SXT cameras
- 26V Gold Mount Plus Shark Fin Bracket – Enables two Dionic 26V batteries to provide extended mobile power runtimes for ARRI Alex LF, 65 and SXT cameras
The DIONIC 26V charger offers rapid charging for both 14.4V and 26V batteries — charging the 98-watt-hour in around 1.5 hours and the 240-watt-hour in around 3.5 hours — a sharp contrast to competing dual-voltage or hybrid batteries that require as much as two to three times this amount of charge time. The DIONIC 26V series also offers a dual-bracket solution that enables up to 480 watt-hours of power (combining two DIONIC 26V 240 batteries), delivering many hours of untethered lighting power for LED panels.
